”It Is Our Visa Policy, And We Can Determine Who Comes Into The UK.”- UK Replies FG

On Thursday, Catriona Laing, British high commissioner to Nigeria, speaking at an orientation programme for people with disability seeking Chevening scholarship opportunities in the UK, responded to the  the federal government’s statement on UK government’s threat of visa restriction on perpetrators of electoral violence. 

According to the British High Commissioner to Nigeria:

“It is our visa policy, the UK, and we can determine who comes to the UK. So, that is a non-sovereign right. 

“And all we are saying is that in line with the Nigerian policy, that those who commit violence or who incite violence, there may be an implication for that person when they apply for a visa to the UK.

“So, I think it is actually completely consistent with the Nigerian policy.

“This is our visa policy, but obviously, it is for Nigeria to determine how they deal with these perpetrators in Nigeria.”
